One of the many bright spots in the SHIMMER tapings of last month was the SHIMMER debut of West Coast prodigy, Davina Rose. SHIMMER great Serena Deeb has taken an interest in Davina's career and she obviously pushed her with Dave Prazak (it's not often that a young talent gets to bypass SPARKLE and go directly to the big show). The good news is that Davina Rose doesn't need much of a push; her skills speak for themselves. She acquitted herself well in the ring against some SHIMMER mainstays like Mercedes Martinez, Nicole Matthews, and Portia Perez (the latter two as part of a burgeoning feud between Serena and Portia -- between the Canadian Ninjas and Deeb/Rose). Davina definitely came to learn and came to compete -- in short, she came with the right attitude. She stood up under the hot SHIMMER lights (scrutiny of Dave Prazak, the fans, and the most talented lockerroom in women's wrestling).
I wish Davina Rose the best as she continues to wrestle in her home state of California and hopefully gets invited back to SHIMMER next March 17-18. Here are some photos to celebrate her historic SHIMMER debut.
